Aibu to wonder how the hell this is legal? It's PUBLIC transport and surely you need to be properly dressed for it.

there are no laws about going out in just your underwear. As long as your genitals are covered, it is all good.

I noticed in the photographs it was mainly men. More trendy people doing things that make women uncomfortable.

safety in numbers by the look of things.
was probably only one stop and loads of photos

My partner is a tube driver. I asked if this was serious. He said yep. I know about the World Naked Bikeride but this was new to me.

Quite - I notice that none of the men are wearing hats.

HoraceCope Tue 15-Jan-19 07:56:07

oh, they split into 4 groups apparently.
how funny

What the fuck is the point? It isn't particularly amusing or raising money, just more exhibitionism for social media. When will these attention seeking idiots give it a rest?

HoraceCope Tue 15-Jan-19 08:00:00

its just a bit of silliness
bit like naked cycle ride

@Jackshouse yep mainly men wonder why hmm

As for the hat comment person I'm sure you'd feel comfortable getting into a tube carriage full of men in their y fronts alone and make a hat joke. Hilarious.

“I noticed in the photographs it was mainly men. More trendy people doing things that make women uncomfortable.”

Huh. Funnily enough I was looking at some of the blokes and thinking that plenty of young women wear smaller shorts round Asda on the average summer day.

It wasn’t mainly men though 🤷🏼‍♀️ There were loads and loads of women doing it.
It’s a bit of harmless fun.

easyandy101 Tue 15-Jan-19 08:06:57

Hardly a sausage fest is it? There's women there enjoying themselves in every photo.

Yeah they probably do make socially awkward people feel um, socially awkward

It's people having a laugh, get over yourselves

Harmless stuff.

It doesn’t look as if they are loud an boorish in an intimidating way like football groups can be in tne tube. The vibe is not ‘phwooar missus get an eyeful ‘ or stag night antics.

It’s in a Sunday, not rush hour Monday when everyone is pressed against each other.

Men without trousers are absurd and comic rather than threatening (unless looming out from behind a bush as a flasher) , hence so many spotty boxer shorts Pythonesque scenes in sitcoms when a man is seen in his pants.

I am amused by the pics of bare knees along the tube carriage.

Let’s not moan about ^everything* just because we are too sensible to take part.

Hoopaloop Tue 15-Jan-19 08:12:53

Reckon it's 50/50 men/women. Regardless, it's pure Facebook/Instagram look at me bollocks.

DoingMyBest2010 Tue 15-Jan-19 08:13:29

No worse then naked ironing. Get over it. As long as you didn't need to stare down a men's crotch sitting wide-legged, then you need to lighten up.

Why is this being turned into something it isn’t?

Google it and have a look at the pictures, absolutely loads of women taking part, loads.

It’s not something I would do, frankly no one needs to see my arse in knickers, but everyone is clearly enjoying themselves, it’s a bit of fun

Better than standing on the escalator behind someone with half their arse hanging over the top of their trousers.

OftenHangry Tue 15-Jan-19 08:18:34

It's bit of harmless fun (with plenty of women joining in too btw).
Agree with PP about size of the shorts in a summer.

Must we have a problem with EVERYTHING when men are involved too? 😉

sarahjconnor Tue 15-Jan-19 08:19:27

When I see these photos I just wonder how the hell so many women manage to get on with life in such uncomfortable pants with half their arse hanging out.

longwayoff Tue 15-Jan-19 08:22:10

Oh. The thongs. The rears.

sarahjconnor Tue 15-Jan-19 08:22:13

The pants in teh standard and secret London are far more substantial than the pants featured in the daily mail article I saw yesterday. I am now imagining creepy mail reporters seeking out the skimpiest pants for their editorial. Yuk.

Those tube seats are going to be wiffy 😷

Yearinyearout Tue 15-Jan-19 08:31:29

There's a bloke who rides the bus in Manchester wearing tiny running shorts (in all weathers) that he tucks into his waistband on one side to look like he's had a wardrobe malfunction and is accidentally flashing his arse cheek. Since he does it all the time it's clearly deliberate and he's getting some weird thrill out of it.
